? >> extraordinarily well, andrea. good afternoon. as a matter of fact, this issue is of vital importance to literally millions of people in the united states. we have to remember that for the past four years there have been a record number of deportations under the obama administration. record now 1.8 million people have been deported. the border is more secure than it's ever been in o'our recent history, and the fact of the matter is that something like this which deals with issues like the border, it deals with what to do with the broken legal immigration system, both sides agree that it's broken, but also deals in a humane matter with 11 million people who are here without their documents and who have been here for many years, many of them have children here, have grandchildren here and have contributed to this society and to this economy for many, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and oth
be aryaning on immigration reform, but it's so tricky that president obama is expected to issue few if any ultimatums in las vegas. eight sfenators, four from each party unveiled their step toward an agreement. conservatives aren't happy with it rerks jekting it as a form of amnesty. lawmakers are said to be working on a plan of their own. white house correspondent brianna keilar is looking at it. >> reporter: in 2011 president obama went to the border town of el paso to press for comprehensive immigration reform. >> out of many, one. we define ourselves as a nation of immigrants. >> reporter: that went nowhere. now in a second term, the president is trying it again, heading to las vegas today to push for border security, a verification system for workers and punishment if they don't and the most significant and controversial part of the president's plan, a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. it includes registering with the government, undergoing background check, paying taxes and a penalty, and learning english. a solution has alluded past presidents including george w. b
. president obama and chris matthews will say this is a false issue. in white house fact sheet, the first bullet point that the white house makes and the first one that president obama says continuing to strengthen the border security. if i could make a final point, i think that republicans and also democrats should stop thinking about this in terms of politics. good policy is good politics. i don't think republicans should worry about who will vote for them in years coming because of something they do today. they should do the right thing for the economy and the national security. it's better than doing nothing. >> shouldn't it be coupled with entitle reform? >> bob: a couple of things here i'd say. the vast, vast majority of people work and you can see them in city. they are working. they are not near to go on the dole. obama and the senate called for them not to get the welfare grant. the other thing as dana pointed out, she did not point this out, i'll point it out. the border got more and more secure every year. it is good policy. we have to deal with this. if we turn to politics rig
of obama policy i take the issue with. the lack of transparency. the civilians we kill human soldiers also. sometimes accidentally or not. kill civilians, as well. humans can do what robots are doing. it gets american soldiers out of the way but having robots kill civilians and sometimes then reclassifying them as enemy combatants that makes me very uncomfortable. i mean, the drones are ultimately imprecise and not necessarily because the technology but the intelligence. right? a drone could say, kill this table and just blow up the table and not blow up that camera. but how do we know exactly who's going to be sitting at the table and steve didn't call out sick today and capehart is there and we didn't get steve. >> thank god for that. >> you know? but i mean what ultimately makes me uncomfortable is robotic warfare really easy decision to make. there should be a challenge for human beings to say let's go to war because there's blood going to be on people's hands. werner vous about it. i think the legal case and international issue is really sort of easy to sort of bre
it to the table. so, it's complicated issue, guys and one that i thought might come up after president obama was safely re-elected and it is. it's coming up. i think it's worth getting some of the issues out on the table. one, there are the humanitarian concerns, of course. hundreds if not thousands dead. many children, many innocent civilians. two, the legal issues. what's happening with due process here? how are we now killing sometimes american citizens without due process, without bringing them back, charging them, trying them, that sort of thing? there's also the issue of hypocrisy. and now invisible anti-war movement that begged for george w. bush's impeachment in some cases has been silent on this issue but i think the one that's most important is the issue of policy implication because as hawkish as you might be, right, or i might be, you can sort of say, well, forget the human taryn issues, war is war. you could say forget the legal issues. i can justify a lot of things in the time of war and willing to overlook the highway pk sy. the one to care about is plitd call implementation o

from illinois brought a bi-partisan element to the obama administration. the president issued a statement thanking lahood for his dedication, hard work, and years of service to the american people. secretary lahood said he'll stay on the job until his replacement is confirmed. it took 16 doctors an 13 hours of surgery but an iraq war vet who lost both his arms in combat has a new lease on life. brendan marrocco is just the 7th person in the united states to undergo a rare double arm transplant surgery. he lost his arms and legs in 2009 when an armored vehicle he was driving was hit by a roadside explosion in iraq. marrocco says the surgery is like a new beginning for his life. it has given me a lot of hope for the future. i feel like i am getting a second chance to start over after i got hurt. the complicated surgery done at johns hopkins hospital involved taking limbs from a deceased person and attatching them to morrocco. he does not have full feeling in his new arms, but he can already text and comb his hair. morrocco says he is most looking forward to driving his dodge ch
the bipartisan plan. president obama is flying to nevada to push the issue there. there was a flash of the old straight talking john mccain today when he was asked why republicans are suddenly ready to compromise so much on immigration. >> one, as i have stated before elections, elections, the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that there are many issues in which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens. but this is a preeminent issue with those citizens. >> today's developments left one right-wing republican observer completely dumbfounded. >> if the democrats think their position on immigration, let's use that for example, is the right one, and if the democrats' position is what is getting all that support from hispanic voters, what i don't understand is why would the democrats want to give up some of those voters to the republicans? can somebody help me out here. >> i don't know, rush, sounds like you're beyond help, but i'll give it a try. what you are seeing is not a compromise on immigration. you are seeing republicans surrender
, by supporting as actively as did you barack obama, you also put yourself in a category of intolerance on issues like entitlement culture. when you yourself were born in the south bronx and you made it on your own. the entitlement culture now extends to 50% of the american homes. all right? huge rise in it. so you're putting yourself in that bracket by supporting the democratic party through barack obama. who their values are different than yours, general. >> yes, i was raised in the south bronx. i can assure it was social security that kept my parents in respectable comfort after they had retired and they paid into that. >> bill: that's not means tested. that's not what i'm talking about. >> i would have means testing in a heart beat. in fact, i should be means tested. i think there are a lot of things we could do with entitlement reform. i think there are lots of areas in our government where we can take a hard look entitlement reform, other areas and there are ways to cut budget. but. >> bill: but the president isn't doing that is he a spender. >> remember one thing, it's the congress that pa

of these issues, going too far, alienating the white voters. but president obama won despite the huge deficit, there is a clear sense there, reflecting the ideas of what is the soci socially liberated whites, there is a clear challenge there. >> did it surprise you? >> no, i think it continued, as john king pointed out, many of the issues on the congressional politics are difficult. what the president is doing is identifying a kind of -- solidifying the properties of the coalition that approved the majority in five of the past six presidential elections. there is a risk for republicans, here, too. if they block the president's initiatives, they kind of deepen the problem. >> what about comprehensive, immigration reform, gay marriage? how difficult will those be? >> look, the coalitions are very similar, the groups that support him, the regions that support him are very similar. the one that he has the best prospects, immigration reform, after this last election, there are enough republicans, jeb bush, who see value for the party in trying to settle it. on things like climate and guns it will

point, right? as with the other issues that president obama name-checked so specifically in his inaugural address this week, the things that got his speech branded as so liberal this week, what president ao. bama was alluding to there at the end by bringing up gun violence in his inaugural address is a set of policies that he and vice president biden have proposed for dealing with gun policies. and these policies get labeled liberal. but it turns out they are very popular. they are very, very, very widely popular. gallup just did a national poll on the whole list of proposal as that president obama and vice president biden have put forward on gun violence. bang high-capacity ammo clips. that gets majority support in this country. 54%. reinstating and strengthening the assault weapons ban we had for ten years that expired back in '04. majority support. look at that. 60% of the country wants that. making it so only the military and law enforcement can have so-called cop killer bullets, those armor-piercing bullets. 67% of the country supports that. and the numbers get higher from
refuses to federalize the issue. obama's speech, then, was sound and fury. you're here for your big conference and i just wanted to ask you when you were listening to president obama's inaugural address and heard the remarks, did you spike the football? >> i honestly cried. i was sitting on the steps of the capitol with my 11-year-old daughter and to hear the president inauguration after inauguration was a powerful moment. >> we're going to have to break away for just a second. here's secretary of state hillary clinton. >> i was very honored when john asked me to take part in this because john is is the right choice, to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy and i urge his speedy confirmation. as we've heard from both the chairman and ranking member, as we just heard from senator warren, he will bring about a leadership that is ex am plear. he has acted as the young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee through the time that he served with such distinction as its chairman. he's been a valued partner to this administration and to me person
up for a research project on long-term football health risks. this past weekend president obama weighed in on the issue, quote, i'm a big football fan, but if i had a son, i'd have to think long and hard before i let him play football. i think those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact it's going to change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence. harvard researchers say on average the life span of a football player is 20 years shorter than that of the average american man. nfl players and families have 5500 concussion-related lawsuits pending in the league. one, the family of junior seau. seau was diagnosed with cte, a degenerative brain disease. two other football legends committed suicide last year, david duerson shot himself in the chest, leaving a note requesting his brain be used for research and described his condition saying, his brain was falling off. his wife said he couldn't remember things from five minutes ago. joining the panel now is democratic congressman bill pascrell of new jersey and from boston, co-director of the center
that this is the main vehicle. the gang of eight bill will be the main vehicle with president obama's backing. if you need an example of why republicans need to get on this issue, nevada started the 2012 election as a swing state. by the end of it neither party was spending money there because the hispanic community was so aligned with the democratic candidate that mitt romney couldn't compete. it went the way of new mexico in 2008, and i think republicans recognized that this is a first step. simply signing on to immigration reform doesn't mean they're going to win 70% of the hispanic vote, but they need to get this issue behind them because electorally speaking they would struggle for a decade or two decades if they don't. sxwro we've seen a mood swing. republicans know they have to get right on this, and this is why you're seeing this coalition come together so quickly. there's support for it. there's a new cbs news poll that shows that a majority, 51%, believe in a path to sit sfwlenship. there's only 24% that say the undocumented immigrant should get out. >> that will be one of the final issues

he disagreed with president obama on the increase in troops in afghanistan. again, key issues that would play out if he gets the job at the pentagon. >> chris, we've seen these things before. this one at least is getting off to a very uncertain start. >> yes. >> we know the drama and all of the positions that have been taken pro and con and the lobbies that have been taken against him, and it's been pretty fierce, and i know he has been doing murder boards and he has been practicing at the pentagon. they've got really good people working with them. you might have expected that he would have, as kelly points out, anticipated this line of questioning from john mccain. >> well, and let me just add one other thing. he is a former senator. he is not unaware of how these things go. this is not someone who is sort of a newbie to processes like this. you know, look. i found the mcdane-hagel confrontation incredibly compelling for a number of reasons. not the least of which is the -- these were two men that were the best, lit rate the best of friends. chuck hagel was the chairman of jo
is working on its own immigration bill and president obama will address the issue tomorrow in las vegas. the bipartisan senate plan includes a path to citizenship, but illegal immigrants will have to undergo a background check and pay a fine and back taxes before gaining legal status in the united states. all that is contingent on securing borders. the proposal provides for increased use of drones, more personnel and improved infrastructure and it would create an employment verification system and improve the process for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino
situation room." a major speech on a hot button issue. president obama speaking out a while ago in las vegas about comprehensive immigration reform. his remarks come one day after a bipartisan group of senators laid out a framework for a possible bill that would be a path to citizenship to increase border security. but the president also made it clear if congress can't act quickly on that, he'll put forward his own bill. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is standing by. detail for us what is in the president's proposal? >> reporter: wolf, detail is the key word. in the past, the president has been accused of standing for policy proposals short on specifics. not today. president obama laid out a plan for comprehensive immigration reform that would change the immigration system in three central ways. first, it would strengthen workplace enforcement, specifically by making it harder to hire illegal immigrants in the workplace and make it harder for illegals to get jobs here. secondly, it would create a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented workers who are already
looking at 2014, but 2016. around this issue. and engaging that obama coalition. for so long, the passion and enthusiasm had been on the gun lobby side and now you see on the gun control side. i think there had, i think, in some ways been a bit of an apprehension and linking sandy hook to the things going on in chicago for many, many years. over the last three years. 270 school-aged children in chicago have been gunned down. >> yeah. >> that's many, many, many sandy hooks and so i think this incident tragic as it is will in some ways link these two events and link what has been going on a lot of times in the cities around increase gun control and background checks to this larger conversation. we'll see, of course, obama in minneapolis, on monday. doing interesting things there. but again, i think the assault weapons ban, it will be a difficult climb. i think it is interesting and surprising that joe manchin is in this fight, at least in terms of the background checks and i think we have seen this energy now on the gun control side that we haven't seen. >> 92% of all americans in favor of
administration's head cheerleader is now taking issue with the questions asked of president obama and secretary clinton? >> i mean, didn't you expect one series of tough questions? >> especially so in the case of "60 minutes." >> i mean, it really was something you would expect from the state-run media. it was that kind of level of propaganda. >> i got to tell you, i was waiting for it in anticipation. and here is what i got. i got a softball. i got a whiffle ball, a nerf ball, an air ball. >> it's like a soft boiled egg. >> kroft challenged the president and secretary of state on the administration's brand of foreign policy. >> the biggest criticism of this team and the u.s. foreign policy from your political opposition has been what they say, an abdication of the united states on the world stage. >> somalia or gadhafi probably doesn't agree with that assessment, for he wasn't around he probably would not agree with that assessment. obviously we helped put together and lay the groundwork for liberating libya. when it comes to egypt, i think had it not been for the leadership we showed, you mig
there will be the emphasis on the enforcement side, but i think that obama will spend some political capital on the issue of how these 11 million undocumented aliens can become on the path to citizenship. >> and as someone who kns that process, who knows the complicated paperwork, who knows the frustration of waiting for the bureaucracy, do you think it can be done, you can have a path to earned citizenship, which somebody comes forward, gets first a green card, legal status and then in line for citizenship. can that be done in a way that is fair or as fair as possible in the sense that if there is someone who has been waiting legally, will the people already in this country actually go to the back of the line? that's what a lot of people suspect won't happen. >> well, the senate proposal and president obama have both said they will go to the back of the line. that line in some instances is years long for family reunification. it is one of the reasons that employers have said over and over that we need a simplified streamlined immigration system so that persons can be hired legally. and have a legal path
